When the clock strikes midnight, this blog will turn into a pumpkin….


G’day guys! I am beyond stoked that ‘Pumpkin Week’ was welcomed with open arms and beta carotene glows! Since the first recipe was shared, it made my black heart skip reading all your emails and comments across social media at how excited you were to see pumpkin recipes. 

I’m not going to lie- Amanda and I were both a little apprehensive in regards to the timing of it.

“Are we too early?”

“Are people still melting in the heat?”

Then again, there is no written rule about when pumpkin recipes can be shared and honestly, next year I will make a pumpkin ice cream, and share it in July.

So there.

To keep the pumpkin momentum going, I’ll be recapping the pumpkin recipes the two us shared this week. Not only that, I’ve collected some other delicious pumpkin recipes to make sure YOU are ‘Oompah Loompah’ status by the end of the month.

Just kidding.

By the end of this week. 

PS- You’ll be in for a treat from the both of us next week, pumpkin style! 

Let’s jump into it!

Cookies which are Fall inspired AND perfectly acceptable for breakfast AND have chocolate chips too? I think these should be called ‘Armookies’.

  1. I’m in for pumpkin all year long. As long as you fly over and make these recipes for me. I’ll pay in Swiss Cheese and chocolate and believe me, it is the real shit. Seriously, I love the look of the balls (of course) – totally pinned it. I’ll as Meghan to make them for me. While I am having a pumpkin mojito. (make a recipe please)

  2. What a delicious way to get ready for the upcoming pumpkin madness! I say we make one of these recipes each day and then see how long it takes for us to turn into a pumpkin. I put the over/under at 8 days. By my count, that’s a lot of deliciousness before I turn into a gourd. I think I can handle it! 🙂

  3. What a delicious looking recipe roundup! I definitely need to make at least half of these this fall 🙂 Some years I’m not into pumpkin until November, but this year I already have been craving it. I have an open can of pumpkin in my fridge just begging to be used in one of these recipes!
